I have tried using the USB memory sticks for viewing jpeg photos on my PS3 and the PS3 definitely DOES reconize the USB memory sticks and immediately reads the data on them.
However, I just plugged in an empty 500GB USB2 EXTERNAL drive into the USB ports (I tried all 4 of them) and the PS3 does NOT recognize that an external drive is plugged into the port. This external drive is pre-formatted NTSF.
My initial intentions were to copy a Blu-Ray movie from the PS3 to the external drive and then try to play the blue ray movie from the external drive.(I can then send the movie back to Netflix the same day I received it.)
It looks like that is not going to happen as there is no 'command' to copy the movie. Also When I tried to to a backup of the INTERNAL 60GB drive, is asks to 'insert' a destination drive. The PS3 just does NOT think any external drive is attached.
As soon as I plug his external drive into my computer, it instantly reconizes the drive and immediately uses it.
Any thoughts on how to get my PS3 to accept an external USB2 drive? --Greg--
